Our 3/4/5 collaborative artwork is inspired by the 2019 NAIDOC theme ‘Voice, Treaty, Truth’. For voice, we included William Cooper who inspired generations of activists working for justice for Indigenous Australians. His voice, along with many others are the key to creating meaningful change. We used eucalyptus leaves to write powerful words in English and Ngunnawal language that promotes reconciliation. Treaty is represented through the shaking of hands in friendship, respect and understanding. The last panel is grounded in the Truth. The truths of our history and how this make meaningful steps on our ongoing journey to reconciled Australia.
Reconciliation means… Reconciliation means respecting one another and finding a way to grow and learn together for a better future.
